At least Dennis Miller’s writers are working.
With the number of new American jobs offering 30 or fewer hours of work per week outnumbering the traditional full-time kind, according to the Investors Business Daily, the United States is moving more and more toward an economy where the the 40-hour work week is on its way out. And some estimates show the number of part-time jobs is outpacing the number of full-time positions by 35-1, according to an Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Both reports blame Obamacare – the 2010 law that ostensibly aimed at “universal” health-insurance coverage – but instead looks like its reshaping the American workweek, especially in the traditionally low-paid, low-skill service jobs Obamacare was supposed to help.
A Miller tweet Monday night tried to make that point with a jibe at the man who gave Obamacare its name — and whose legacy depends on it.
Some of Miller’s followers thought he already had a part-time job, just not the one we pay him for.
Some were just relieved Obama’s not trying even harder.
But the best one showed a commitment even die-hard Obamacare critics would have trouble matching.
“Mr. President … would you mind working part-time?” would look great on a Chevy Volt.
